New Ford Mustang GT Performance Pack Challenges Camaro SS 1LE

2018 Ford Mustang Performance Pack Level 2 revealed

2018 Ford Mustang Performance Pack Level 2 revealed

New wheels and tyres are a big addition to the Level 2, with 305/30/R19 Michelin Sport Cup 2 tyres fitted on split-fitment aluminium wheels.

The Performance Pack Level 2 will be an add-on to the previously announced Performance Pack (now Level 1), which already includes goodies like larger brakes, a TORSEN limited slip differential and a stiffer chassis than the stock Mustang GT.

"It will just beg you to go faster". Today, the company unveiled the Performance Pack Level 2, an upgrade on the upgrade which they said would "bridge the gap" between the first Performance Pack and the GT350, the most powerful version. Following rumors that started way back in November past year, the blue oval manufacturer has given the 2018 Mustang GT some extra muscle with the Performance Package Level 2.

Ford Vehicle Dynamics Development Engineer Mike Del Zio put it more succinctly than that, even: "If you think of the GT with the Performance Pack as our modern-day Boss 302, then the Level 2 is really our Boss 302 Laguna Seca", he said, referring to the special performance models offered on the last iteration of the Mustang from 2012 to 2013. To balance the downforce, a subtle, redesigned rear spoiler stretches across the decklid. The performance of the turbocharged four-cylinder engine is bolstered by a Ford Performance cold-air intake and Borla exhaust, and power transferred to the wheels via 6-speed manual transmission.

OnePlus 5T With Slim Bezels Leaked In Images Again
According to a report by #Tech Radar, alleged images on an unidentified OnePlus smartphone have even begun emerging online. And the images clearly show the OnePlus 5T with zero bezels on sides and minimal bezels on top and bottom.

Also present are specially-designed 19-inch custom wheels that Ford claim will deliver better handling and steering response.

Other upgrades over the Performance Pack Level 1 include a 67 percent stiffer rear stabilizer bar, a 12 percent stiffer front stabilizer bar, 20 percent stiffer front springs and rear springs that are 13 percent stiffer. "The auto has lightning-quick response and never gives up grip", said Jaime Cullen, Ford supervisor for vehicle dynamics development.

Ford has revealed another optional upgrade package for the Mustang, but for now it's only available in the States.

The goal of the model isn't to create the ultimate track auto, like the 1LE packages on the Chevrolet Camaro SS and ZL1, but instead to make a daily drivable weekend canyon carver that delivers on the promises made by the Mustang's formidable powertrain and stiffer chassis.
